Welcome to Pahang & Tioman Island

Pahang's other big ticket – the primordial jungles of Taman Negara – lies tucked up in the state's north. Its virgin tracts of rainforest, home to a howling, twittering, trumpeting (and occasionally roaring) rabble of elusive wildlife, offer a direct connection with nature as nature intended it: wild, unrelenting, raw.

Between these big acts, you'll find reggae beach parties on the surf-bum sands of Cherating, royal splendour and noble palaces in riverside Pekan, a fine crop of colonial architecture in Kuala Lipis, abandoned tin mines in the hills of Sungai Lembing and a culinary adventure or two in the restaurants and cafes of Kuantan.
